In the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) making award scrolls for other members is a whole hobby-within-a-hobby. So are armor making, woodworking, costuming, culinary arts, period music... it’s a long list. While most of my earlier SCA award scrolls, including the first three shown here, follow the SCA traditional book-page style, the Arms scroll for David Craig is based on actual scrolls confirming charters and grants of the period. My Gorget, which I still use, is based on one in the Chicago Institute of Arts but is not etched as that would have placed it outside my “persona” period. The thrones roughly follow the form of the British throne at Westminster while the speaker cabinet is wholeheartedly anachronistic.
